    Energy Efficiency Consultants

    ACHIEVING ENERGY EFFICIENCY

    INTRODUCTION

    EPC Certificates came into legislation in 2006. They are mandatory for any property that is sold or let. EPC Solutions Northeast Ltd. Provide EPC Certificates for both domestic and commercial level 3 + 4 properties. Our surveyors are highly skilled, experienced and have a vast knowledge of energy efficiency technologies and improvements we can offer you guidance and advice when looking to make improvements to your property. 

    We take pride in providing our customers with information that can assist them with their energy efficiency improvements and savings. We do not just do the survey, we take the time to  inform and educate you.

    Even when we have completed our work at your property, you can call on us anytime! If you are looking to purchase or let a property and have an EPC Certificate, we can have a look at it for you free of charge and give you guidance, or answer any questions you may have.

    The term ‘carbon emissions’ refers to the release into the atmosphere of carbon dioxide (CO2).

    Carbon dioxide is a naturally-occurring colourless and odourless gas that is integral to life. It is also a greenhouse gas and the burning of carbon-based fossil fuels means there is more carbon carbon dioxide in the atmosphere leading to increased rates of climate change.

    Carbon-based fuels that release carbon dioxide when burned include timber, coal, gas, oil, petrol, diesel and so on.

    The amount of carbon released by a particular event, person, building or thing is typically referred to as its ‘carbon footprint’, and is measured in tonnes of CO2. On a individual level, the main contributors to a carbon footprint include the amount of type of energy that is used to heat the home, the use of electrical appliances, type of transport, amount of air travel, and so on.

    The Building Regulations set out requirements for specific aspects of building design and constructionRegulation 26 of the building regulations states that 'where a building is erected, it shall not exceed the target CO2 emission rate for the building…'.

    The target CO2 emission rate (TER) sets a minimum allowable standard for the energy performance of a building and is defined by the annual CO2 emissions of a notional building of same type, size and shape to the proposed building. TER is expressed in annual kg of CO2 per sq. m.

    Energy performance certificates (EPCs), set out the energy efficiency rating of buildings. They are required when buildings are built, sold or rented, if they have a roof and walls and use energy to condition an indoor climate.

    The establishment of the Climate Change Act 2008 committed the UK to reducing greenhouse gases by at least 80% by 2050 (compared to the 1990 baseline), with a reduction of at least 34% by 2020. A strategy for how this was to be achieved was set out in The Carbon Planpublished in December 2011.

    The commitment to reducing carbon emissions is a considerable, and often controversial, factor in the development of major infrastructure projects such as the third runway at Heathrow Airport, with activists arguing that its construction will tie the UK into an increased rate of emissions for many years.

    In December 2006, the then Labour government committed that from 2016 all new homes would be ‘zero carbon’ and introduced the Code for Sustainable Homes, against which the sustainability of new homes could be rated. However, on 10 July 2015, the governmentpublished ‘Fixing the foundations: creating a more prosperous nation’ which made the surprising decision to scrap the zero carbon homes initiative.

     

    We are here to help! We all have a part to play in reducing carbon emissions...this is our part. Be energy smart!

    All EPCs are lodged at the Landmark Registry

    Commercial Surveys Level 3 & 4

       All non-domestic buildings for sale and rent will require a Non-Domestic Energy Performance Certificate (NDEPC) and a Recommendation Report (RR). This information will help owners and occupiers make their building more energy efficient and allow potential buyers and tenants to compare the energy performance of different buildings.  If a commercial property rates below Band E in England and Wales the property legally cannot be let.

    This falls into MEES (Minimum Energy Efficiency Standard)

    OCDEA/SAP

    Every newly built domestic dwelling in the UK requires an Energy Performance Certificate (EPC) before being built, sold or let.

     

    On Construction Domestic Energy Assement (OCDEA), reports and full SAP calculations using Standard Assessment Procedure (SAP) available.

    We are currently not undertaking OCDEA reports. Sap calculation are available.

     

    Solar Survey
    For those of you like many out there, who are considering installing Solar PV in their homes, then it is important to have an understanding of what the criteria is to be eligible for a Feed-in Tariff (F.I.T.).
    The property must first be appropriately insulated and this will be reflected on the Energy Performance Certificate (EPC) with a minimum rating of Band D with solar panels included  for the eligibility of receiving the F.I.T.
    You will require an EPC Certificate for domestic and commercial properties to submit for the F.I.T.
